It occurred to me in setting up my system that I will have a tickler file both at home and work. Is this a good idea, or is it better if it can be avoided? It kind of seemed like it was a bit like running two calendards to some extent.
While buying my files today, something caught my eye. Plastic wallets (for use with 3 ring binders) that were labelled 1-31 and another set that were labelled by month.
I wondered if instead of having two ticklers, I could have one portable tickler system using this method.
I'm not sure how large it might grow and whether I would really want to carry it around when traveling or not - but presumably thats not an option for most tickler systems anyway.
The danger I can see with two systems, is that if my plans change suddenly and I am forced to not go home or go to the office for say several days longer than I had anticipated, I will not have reviewed my tickler file that far in advance and I won't know whats coming up. Sure, it may not happen very often and maybe I am worrying about nothing or over-complicating this, but it seems to be a barrier to trusting the system for me right now.
Any comments - has anyone else tried a portable folder based system as a tickler?
